Embers

Season: 13 February – 9 March

Tickets Available From: 09-Jan-2019

Written by: Campion Decent

Directed by: Jan McLachlan

Embers recounts the courage, survival and community strength shown when residents faced the extreme adversity of the 2003 fires in the Eastern Alpine area of Victoria. Campion Decent's award winning play uses material from Government transcripts and interviews with residents from the rural townships involved. These are true stories with real emotions from actual people and events. The content is still relevant today as we continue to battle bushfires.

A marvellous piece of verbatim theatre, with 10 actors playing multiple roles. The Director acknowledges the support received from the playwright Campion Decent.

It is both ordinary and extraordinary at the same time. # Warning - special effects will be used.
